virginia talking about this, basically saying, that the president's team desperately does not want to run on his record, so, they are desperately trying to have it about anything other than his record. mitt has got to be forceful about forceful and fighting back. >> alisyn: he went further than that and not just fighting back, how it's time for mitt romney to articulate what his plan is. you can't just be on the attack and that's the-- >> that's the wall street article two weeks ago, for romney to put 0 ut an economic plan and a health care mrap besides saying that obama got us into this mess. >> dave: it's a big week for romney. you look potential for the vice-presidential selection week, if there were signals that that's pending and coming soon and maybe that's when you start to craft that narrative and that message and energize the party. we shall see. >> alisyn: and we have some headlines for you. >> dave: good. >> alisyn: right now. it's actually a fox news

[applause]. and in fact, i have every expectation it will continue to be effective. articles of american history has always moved toward expanding the electorate. it's what made this nation exceptional. we will simply not allow this era to be the beginning of the reversal of that historic project. >> history. let's put that in protect. joining us now is presidential historian, nick, great to see you as always. >> great to see you, clayton.
6:16 am
>> he says historically we've expanded the electorate in the united states of america, and do you disagree with that or do you agree? >> well, he's right. directionally we have. in 1965 lbj the voting rights act companion to the civil rights act which created a situation where southern states can no longer disenfran african-american voters. in the last 30 years it has expanded, but the last five or six years states have tried to crack down on fraud, a really big issue and attorney general holder is confusing those two issues. >> that's interesting, his point is that when you enact these voter i.d. laws that you're going to keep voters away from the polls, therefore, you wouldn't be exhibit panning the electorate, but we have some historical context. i want you to take us back in georgia in 2006 when they
6:17 am
instituted their own voter i.d. law. >> exact the opposite happened. in 2006 they did a voter i.d. law and what they saw was increased turnout, pre-and post, and from 2004 to 2008 turnout dramatically increased among minority voters. some would say that's due to president obama. if you look at the congressional elections pre and post, increased as well, 2006 to 2010. that's not to say between the law and it didn't suppress turnout which attorney general holder claimed was the case. >> clayton and made the case in the argument to the naacp, that this voter i.d. law in texas he likened it to southern poll taxes. if our audience doesn't know,
6:18 am
it's taxes to vote. would you say it's accurate? >> it's a difficult argument. the 1965 voting rights act tried to do away with poll taxes, litry taxes and even grandfather clausesment a lot of states have photo i.d. laws and there are lots of different i.d.'s from photo i.d.'s to passports and what not. you're trying to crack down on fraud. we've seen increase in fraud and most people aren't aware, in a lot of states you don't need a form of i.d. other than a registration card and most show that voter support. some form of voter i.d. to prevent fraud. so i think the attorney general is looking at the issue differently than 1964 and 1965 e. >> clayton i misspoke, he didn't say that to the naacp, he said that in arizona last week. correction on that. thanks for correcting the record. department of health and human

6:24 am
their kids maybe to go to private school and trying to save money for their kids to go to college. unfair saying your tax dollars can go to someone who doesn't have to work and i would argue it's unfair to families stuck in the system. it didn't give them the nudge they need, the skills they need to get to a better life and i think the only remedy is what tommy thompson said. take them to court because they've unilaterally done this and not following the laws of 16 years put in place. >> alisyn: before bill clinton signed it it was hailed as bipartisan effort to fix welfare as we know it. here is what the health and human services department says about the plan. hhs has authority to waive kleins with the 402. and test approaches and other than those set forth in section 407, including definitions of work activities and engagement. limitations, verifications procedures and calculation of
6:25 am
participation rates. this is a lot of government speak, but help us understand and read between the lines there what they're saying. >> well, alisyn, for 16 years, the law has been interpreted one way and it was clearly, i think, understood what this law meant. bill clinton signed it, it's been the way it's operated for 16 years and all of a sudden they're going to change it. here is the key point, this is not the first time this administration has just radically reinterpreted how the law is applied. we had this administration that said on the defense, we're not going to enforce that or the justice is not going to defend that law. we've seen what this administration did under the law. and recess appointment. and then we've also seen relative to cap and trade which didn't pass and now they're trying to implement. and now, here we are. work requirements and welfare laws in place for 16 years, so, this is one more example of this administration just ignoring the law and i think the only remedy is what senator thompson or governor

thompson said which is we're going to have to take this to court and i'm thinking what will happen before the election. >> alisyn: so it sounds like that may be the next step for republicans is some sort of lawsuit. congressman jim jordan, thank you for joining us and explaining this today. >> thank you. >> alisyn: who is calling the shots in your car? do you have control or your children have control in the car? your e-mails are pouring in. and plus, she's no ordinary granny. oh, boy, what she's doing to put some 20 year olds to shame. ♪ [ female announcer ] you can make macaroni & cheese

6:54 am

that's been our history. that's been the evidence. that's why i ran for president, to fight on behalf of the middle class and those who are striving to get into the middle class and that's why i'm running again for president of the united states. >> alisyn: well, it's interesting. there's an opinion piece in the wall street journal by two operatives, james carville and sam greenberg says that the middle class is in bigger trouble than anybody is talking about. james carville says they are in trouble and they know they're in trouble. they're holding on or slipping, dealing with unemployment in the family, the overhang of debt and the loss of any cushion in life. people are scared about the rising cost of college education, many of the retired are now looking for part-time work and the salaries virtually frozen and a trip to the grocery store produces near desperation and he says
7:02 am
where is the presidential commission on this? now-- >> and crisis, they wrote a book together. like an excerpt in a piece he thinks that the middle class crisis in this country. >> dave: contrast what the president is saying, or support what he's saying and you could argue that's in support of what he's saying because the middle class is struggling. what the president is probably missing there, where are those job creators? >> he wants the bottom up economy, where are the jobs going to be created, not from government? >> right. >> dave: not from the bottom. job creators tend to be in the upward middle class or upper class. >> it sounds like james carville is saying he do nt think that the president has tackled this enough. >> clayton no, he doesn't. and a class warfare issue, too, there is an issue in the way in which, you know, if you do okay. if you've got a moderate paycheck and you're making 30, 40,000 a year, that those are the people who are hurt perhaps the most because they can't get the college grants
7:03 am
or loans that the-- those in poverty can get in the lower class get. so he believes that there's a middle area that has not been tackled by the government and in an effort to make it fair. so you're not having the classes of these people get cuts, these people get breaks and wants the presidential commission to try to fix this. >> dave: at least it's moving towards a philosophical debate and not talking about outsourcing of jobs and swiss bank accounts. at least this is about the economy, a philosophical debate we may begin to have. >> alisyn: we'd love to hear from you on this, you can find us all on twitter. meanwhile, let's get your headlines, a fox news alert right now. time may be running out for two americans kidnapped in egypt. the family says he's a diabetic and may need medical attention right away. lewis is a pastor from the boston area, on a missionary trip in egypt when an armed gunman abducted him in broad

see that this cost the taxpayer more than $671,000. and i think that only the investigation will tell. >> right, i mean, to be fair, the conferences have gone on for years under any kind of president, this has been happening, but it's -- is it a problem now, obviously, we're in measures of austerity and looking at the conferences department to department getting the blaerng checks. would you have a problem with the departments doing any sort of work shops that involve travel. should they be done in their own conference rooms. >> i don't have a problem with the work shops, this is an indicative problem with washington. this is that's wrong with washington. this is-- they think it's okay to have a lavish convention at the taxpayer expense. here we have an agency on the heels of gsa thinking it's okay and only, in their

8:01 am
vice-presidential contenders-- and they're looking at the short number of individuals, but representative ryan has long side he's not interested. he doesn't want to do it and you have to ask yourself. governor huckabee talks about this, right. it's one of the most worthless jobs in washington. you have no power really and he calls it being a spare tire, get pumped up and ready to go and he's right. can paul ryan do more in congress or more as a vice-president. >> alisyn:. >> well, depends on if congress can agree on anything, but in terms of steering the conversation, but providing energy into romney campaign that could be vital. because there isn't a whole lot of it right now. >> and rob portman has been bandied about in ohio and gave the g.o.p. weekly address yesterday. let's take a listen. the past three years or so we have a known the greatest challenge before us in the nation is an academy that's just not producing enough

8:09 am
congressman need to hear about? >> no, it's not. the public doesn't like these kind of adjectives, they seem to work. you can see when president obama has taken on mr. romney portraying him as a heartless republican, that believes in capitalism and is secretive about finances pulled ahead in the polls, but the overall issue is this right now, at the end of the day when a candidate back in 2008 who promised us that we wouldn't be red and blue, we'd come together as americans, how well is he going to be able to govern afterwards? and i think that's what the president has to keep his eye on. i think he has a fine record to run on. he salvaged the economy gave us health care and as far as foreign policy, rightfully ended the conflict in iraq and turned us toward the western pacific and china and i think at the end of the day his ratings will be hurt, particularly as the campaign edges focusing i would say almost misrepresenting the character of his opponent saying he was associated with a felony at sec.
8:10 am
that may be more harmful to america, he may win, but be harmful to us. >> dave: reminiscent of the swift boat attacks against john kerry and yesterday you had one of the president's spokes people say this, talking to a gaggle of reporter. of course the president wants a high brow despite about the policy issues and what american people actually care about. why then, congressman is he not running on the record you just spoke of? >> i think because he's been in charge of the economy for a while and although the economy, kept us from sinking, he's still the captain of the ship and you are responsible when you're captain of the ship where for it is today. and mr. romney tried to portray him as being responsible for basically not doing better. i understand that, now, look, the other side, trying it characterize mr. romney, look this goes both ways, mr. romney has portrayed the president as being leaderless
8:11 am
overseas. in fact, i thought he's been pretty darn tough overseas and the fact, look, i don't care if you're not going after the al-qaeda in your-- i'm coming in with drones and we are going to get them. my point is this, on the whole he's got good things to run on and i think he should characterize mr. romney as far as his positions that may not help middle class americans. that's all right. in the longer term, this president will be better for us, as mr. romney would be, if he ran, if he not just portrays his adversary as someone who is out of touch, but actually shows why he's in touch with what needs to be done with america. >> dave: that's why we love having you on the program. thanks for being with us, we appreciate it. >> great to be with you again, thanks. >> dave: coming up, tens of thousands of iranian agents reportedly planning attacks on the u.s. while hiding out in latin america. the disturbing details coming up. and and how about reading the

the ghost of ronald reagan. haunting president obama. like obama, reagan faced an economic crisis when he took office in 1981 but instead of hikings taxes on the wealthiest americans, he actually cut income taxes on the highest earners from 70% to 28%. listen: >> those who do work are denied a fair return for their labor by a tax system which penalizes successful achievement and keeps us from maintaining full productivity. but, great as our tax burden is, it has not kept pace with public spending. >> clayton: president obama seems to be ignoring reagan's success by tying to do the exact opposite, taxing his way to an economic recovery, joining us is former advisor to president reagan, art laffer. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, clayton, how are you? >> clayton: i'm doing well. the argument from the left is under reagan the trickle-down economics didn't work. that it ended up leading to a recession under his successor,
9:16 am
george h. w. bush and, the president is talking about a middle-out economic recovery and taxing the wealthy, what do you say. >> the whole model is wrong that obama has, if i may say, go back to jack kennedy the middle class is not at war and there is no reason to fight for the middle class. we are you all in this tub toge, john kennedy said no american is better off by pulling a fellow american down and we are made better off when any one of us is made better off and, ended with the famous line, a rising tide raises all boats and ronald reagan used that line in his campaign, how do you bring them up, it's not old versus young, black versus white, male versus female and we are all americans and you need to bring the prosperity back to everyone, it is not a war but a partnership and you don't do that by attacking the people who provide
9:17 am
the jobs. >> clayton: you disagree with the tax proposal, here's president obama's tax proposal -- >> totally. >> clayton: we'll throw it on the screen, you can dive into the numbers, income over $380,000. it will go up to 39%. reagan did the opposite. >> it is rosie. you cannot tax an economy into prosperity. and to say it is eliminating the tax cut is nonsense. those taxes have been in place for ten years. this is not a temporary tax cut. these people are being selected out to being discriminated against because of their economic success, because they are doing just what we want everyone in america to do, be successful, have a good, high-paying job and be productive. it is the most wonderful group of people that they are going after, and after and after, and they wonder why the results are so bad. well, it is crazy. just crazy what he is doing. >> clayton: quickly, as an economist, the argument from the middle-out economics, you don't buy it? >> no. it is just wrong.
9:18 am
it is all-out economics. everyone needs to have a better playing field and better economy. you cannot love jobs and hate job creators. it is as simple as that. and he's attacking the job creator and wondering why there are no jobs. it is selly. not logical. it is classic mistakes of politicians. >> clayton: we'll see as we head into the election system. >> by the way, i have a... i have one suggestion for you on what you should buy old and new, by the way. >> go ahead. >> you should always buy used antiques. >> clayton: used antiques. yes, it is very hard to get new antiques, though some stores... >> there you go! >> clayton: that is why we have you on, art. the genius! coming up next, a run done, while teachers across the country are forced to take a pay freeze as union bosses rake in the dough to the tune of a half million dollars a year and a group of veterans told to take down the stars and stripes from a bridge because it is a safety hazard.

school teachers, who are facing pay freezes and, facing possible layoffs, so, what did you think when you heard how much the heads of the teachers union were making in salary, almost half a million dollars? >> actually i wasn't surprised. i have known this for a few years. it is that recently, the public has been made aware of what is going on and so it doesn't surprise me. i have no issue with people making however much money as a ceo of a company, if they make half a million dollars a year that is completely fine and they are held accountable to their stake holders and with public sector unions the money is mandated and nobody holds union bosses accountable and they create a wall between themselves and the members, the teachers, and try to say the teachers are treated unprofessionally and are the middle class and what they are really doing is trying to make sure teachers are seen and treated as laborers as opposed to professionals to main main
